The Best Things in Life

Life is Hard but it’s the Hard that makes it Worthwhile

Life is getting hard, it’s much harder by far,
The hardest thing I’ve done, it’s left it’s scars.
It’s work and bills and all those silly thrills,
Of striving and working and after all that still,

Still it demands so much more to be a star.
So much more for the house and the fancy car;
For the wife and the kids, and the things that we dream;
It ain’t just parties and floating on moonbeams.

But it’s the challenge that makes it worth the get,
The rough and the risk that gives thrill to the bet.
The difficult struggle that builds our hearts,
Strengthens character, and crafts a love that lasts.

And it’s the sorrow, and heartache, and all of the pain,
That makes life real, way more than just a silly game.
